Kurdish Digital Library now online!

The Kurdish Digital Library (Bibliothéque Numérique Kurde, BNK) is now online!

The Kurdish Institute of Paris, which runs the largest Kurdish Library in Europe, has put part of its stock of books online. This contains over 10,000 monographs about the Kurds in 25 languages, several tens of thousands of published documents, collections of reviews and newspapers, photographs, videos, postcards and posters, as well as audio archives and music recordings.

In the first instance, it will be possible to consult about one thousand works and several hundreds of associated documents, in Kurdish and other languages, at its site http://bnk.institutkurde.org/catalogue/

Later, as the project of digitalising the library progresses, other works and documents (audio recordings, videos, etc.) will also be made available on the Internet.

The Kurdish digitalised Library will be the first centre for online research on the Kurdish world, as it is already the richest one.

Consulting can be done in French, English and Kurdish.
